  1. We used the following set of reduced concestors in the analyses of concestor intervals. Each concestor was named based on the corresponding taxonomic class of descendants. ‘Time’ represents phylogenetic time from the present in units of substitutions per site. ‘Sibling’ represents the sibling clade that departed from the human lineage at each concestor. ‘Descendants’ represent some examples of extant species in the sibling clade. Topological relationships are shown in Fig. 7
